About the Congress
The International Congress “Information technologies in medicine” will take place in Moscow on October 10-11, 2019.
The current event is the main annual event in the field of Healthcare Informatization in Russia, East Europe and Middle Asia (attended by over 1,100 professionals from at least 5 foreign countries and 80 regions of Russia in 2018). These include executives responsible for development of IT technologies in health care from Federal departments and regions, representatives of leading developers and system integrators. The official language of the Congress is Russian.
The whole event is being held simultaneously in three dimensions: first of all there is traditional scientific conference format with presentations, reports and debates. Secondly, there is the exhibition with its business activities: delivering talks, viewing and comparing working solutions, establishing direct and substantive dialogue. Lastly, there is a backstage part where customers and developers have a chance to communicate with colleagues directly in an informal way, share experiences, establish new contacts and strengthen the existing partnerships.
The Congress will be held for the twentieth time, and has traditionally become a place where coordinators of the regional informatization and services related to medical statistics, insurance and technical support, and of course all software developers of the industry meet and communicate.
“CONSEF” organizes all events related to the exhibition and the conference. The Federal Research Institute for Health Organization and Informatization of Ministry of Health of Russian Federation acts as a co-organizer of scientific program.
Traditionally, heads of relevant departments of the Ministry of Health of Russia, Ministry of Defence of Russia, the Federal Medical and Biological Agency, Roskomnadzor, Federal Compulsory Medical Insurance Fund, Federal Research Institute for Health Organization and Informatization, National Association of Medical Informatics, Russian Association of Artificial Intelligence, The Higher School of Economics University, relevant federal departments, ministries and health authorities from different regions of Russia participated in the event.

Uniqueness and specific features of the event:
It shall be underlined that all research results mentioned in the reports and discussions held during the Congress are dedicated to solutions of the urgent problems and thus have a very clear practical meaning. Participants of the Congress are executives and employees in medical institutions who are in charge of implementing IT technologies in healthcare and social sphere. This helps to bring together scientific basis and implementation practices.
The scientific journal “Physicians and IT” (VAK, RSCI, RSI) will publish an annual edition based on materials presented during the Scientific Conference “Information technologies in medicine.”
Also, the final stage of the exhibition will be organized as a competition between developers in health informatics to identify the “Best Medical Information System 2019”. The results and relevant materials will be published afterwards.
This year we plan to organize more than 90 reports and discussions during the Congress, where federal and regional coordinators responsible for healthcare informatization, leading national medical information system developers, scientists, physicians, teachers, experts of the field and professional associations will meet.
